The Periodic Table of Japanese Characters

the-periodic-table-of-japanese-characters.jpg

Those having trouble memorising the periodic table of elements but who have no problem with popular anime characters may find their salvation at hand with the above rendition of the periodic table.

It is worth pointing out that “Pd” is represented by Kodomo no Jikan…

    Many, many years ago in my honors chem class I remember my teacher telling us that the "correct" table has Lu and Lr in group 3 instead of La and Ac because of how the wide periodic table is laid out. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    It's because those two rows at the bottom are moved there from the place they belong... between the 2nd and 3rd column. But La and Ac are used on the main table to represent where they go because they're used to name those two groups (Lanthanides and Actinides)... but really, it's the ones at the ends of the groups (not the beginning) that should be in that column if you're going by the orbitals and how they react chemically.

    If only I knew about all those characters, it would make memorising the periodic table much easier. Not that it would make any sense to memorise it in the first place. The little numbers usually included in periodic tables are important. Knowing those would come in handy.

    Nice list, I had fun trying to name the characters.

    Could have used higher resolution pictures though since it appears grainy. If I have time maybe I'll redo the table with nicer pictures and formatting
